It sounds almost biblical. More than 300 Airbnb hosts have opened up their homes for free to people wracked by earthquakes, floods, and fires in central Italy, Louisiana, and California, according to listings found on the website. Homes in central Italy, hit by a 6.2 magnitude earthquake on Aug. 23, are on free offer on the website’s urgent accommodation page between Aug. 23 and Sept. 11. Airbnb accommodations could serve as an alternative to temporary relief camps for the 1,000 residents, whose homes were destroyed as towns were turned to rubble. Accommodation is also available to those affected by floods in Louisiana and prolonged wildfires threatening two Californian counties.
